Research Activities
Research [1]on sensor devices based on a nano-scale mechanism and a new type of life support system are the main focus For the sensor device research, the fabrication of a nano mechanical resonator introducing linear and nonlinear phenomena, nano mechanical resonator evaluation, and nano structure fabrication based on the self-assembly[3] are currently being promoted. For the life support system, wearable blood pressure monitoring, an ambient communication system, and a human emotions and stress sensing system are currently being promoted.

Future Plan
It is very important to understand how we can best leverage sensing technologies integrated with information communication technologies (ICT) to solve the serious global environmental issues confronting humankind. We also need to think carefully about how to innovate the modern human lifestyle. Our group was established with the aim of describing the desirable future direction of innovative sensor-based information network systems to contribute to the realization of a secure, safe, and comfortable human environment and to the sustainable development of a global society.
Messages to Students
I believe that maintaining a high motivation is key for everything.
